A lovebird mates any time between the ages of one and five. To get a lovebird to mate, a few key factors must be considered.
Health and normal temperament must be of outstanding quality before lovebirds can mate. Nutrition is the first step to ensuring the health of a lovebird. The diet of a lovebird should consist of a variety of foods. Foods like seeds, pellets, fresh fruits and vegetables are essential to the health of a lovebird. It is also important to institute a plan to incorporate a calcium supplement to any hen of breeding age. The supplement helps to replace nutrients commonly lost during the egg-laying process.
